Review SummaryWe loved this ship! Somewhat smaller than our previous cruise ship, we found it had all the amenities but smaller crowds to contend with. The "Serenity" area was adults only, a lovely area to relax in but with the waterslides immediately above it, a bit of a contradiction as far as quiet and away from children. The organization of the embarkation and disembarkation was terrific! We had very short lineups and waiting times both on and off the ship and at each port. Great job!
Food and Dining
We have only one complaint and it concerns the head waiter assigned to our table. "Bobby" was a very self-centered individual who apparently did not understand that a cruise is supposed to be all about the guests, not all about him. We did not appreciate the constant sexual innuendo's and gyration of hips and being past cruisers, we are aware that he took several short cuts (ie bringing fruit soups already poured instead of doing it at the table) and complained frequently about how hard he had to work and how many guests he was required to serve. We finally changed tables and enjoyed the fabulous service we knew to expect on a Carnival cruise. If you get a waiter you don't care for, don't wait to change tables! It makes all the difference in the world to your dining experience.
